Winemaker Notes

This attractive greenish-straw-yellow Sauvignon Blanc reveals intense aromas of grapefruit and lemon peel on the nose, all wrapped in fresh herbal notes. Its juicy acidity stands out on the palate along with refreshing fruit flavors. It is a vibrant wine with good persistence and an elegant finish.

James Suckling
A fruitier style of sauvignon with sliced lime and hints of grass. Fennel too. Full body, rich and round style. Serious mouth feel.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Sourced from the Aconcagua Costa appellation, the 2016 Sauvignon Blanc is from a plot in the village of Quillota called El Pedregal (stony) that was planted in 2006. It fermented in stainless steel, with 10% whole clusters pressed and fermented in French barriques, where it matured with the fine lees for five months. It has pungent herbal flavors and a citric touch. The palate is dry, somehow austere, with a distinct bitterness in the finish.

Arboleda, South America
Arboleda  Winery Image

Arboleda wines were born in 1999 as part of the shared dream that inspired Robert Mondavi and Eduardo Chadwick to realize the potential of Chile as a world class producer of fine wines. The name "Arboleda" in Spanish means "grove of trees" and is a tribute to the native Chilean trees that have been preserved within the vineyards that produce the Arboleda grapes. The source of the Arboleda grapes comes from two self contained estates within the valley. A stunning hillside property some 40kms inland was acquired and planted in 2000 with a selection of red grape varieties. This property was named "Las Vertientes" due to its natural springs of water. Arboleda red wines aim for complete ripeness, full bodied with high concentration of fruit, complexity and balance.

Arboleda white wines aim to be fresh, crispy with high acidity and intense aromatics. Therefore the vineyards were planted during 2005 in the proximity to the sea, only 14 kms from the Pacific Ocean in a property called "Chilhue", the place of sea gulls in native Mapuche indian language.

The Aconcagua River runs east from the charming costal town of Valparaiso and bisects the land creating the valley after which it was named. While alluvial soils predominate the Aconcagua Valey along its river throughout, its east-west flow creates drastically different conditions on each of its ends. Its western, seaside vineyards, with clay and stony soils upon gently rolling hills, produce cool-climate varieties such as Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Its inner region is one of Chile’s hottest and produces some of its best red wines. Panquehue in the inner Aconcagua is the site of Chile’s first Syrah vines, planted in 1993.

Capable of a vast array of styles, Sauvignon Blanc is a crisp, refreshing variety that equally reflects both terroir and varietal character. Though it can vary depending on where it is grown, a couple of commonalities always exist—namely, zesty acidity and intense aromatics. This variety is of French provenance. Somm Secret—Along with Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc is a proud parent of Cabernet Sauvignon. That green bell pepper aroma that all three varieties share is no coincidence—it comes from a high concentration of pyrazines (herbaceous aromatic compounds) inherent to each member of the family.
